Disney Parks Lake Nona Headquarters Heads to City Review Committee Vote

    A development project years in the making is set to go in front of the City of Orlando’s development review committee tomorrow afternoon. The Disney Parks Lake Nona Campus, called the “Lake Nona Parcel 20A Office Complex” in the plans, will be given a thumbs up or a thumbs down in about 24 hours. It is expected that the plans will pass through the committee without issue.

    The site plan, which can be seen below, calls for 6 office buildings, two flex space buildings, and a central plant totaling over 1.8 million square feet of space. The buildings will range in height from 1-story to 7-stories tall and there will be three parking garages to support the campus.

    The campus will be utilized by the Disney Parks division of The Walt Disney Company. The relocation of 2,000 Cast Members from California to Orlando was originally announced in July 2021. The move has been delayed from a 2023 move-in date all the way to 2026. The announcement of the delay came at time last summer when Disney was in a more adversarial position with the State of Florida. Now, Disney has chosen not to fight DeSantis’ takeover of the Reedy Creek Imrpovement District, and they have stayed silent on more controversial bills introduced by Florida legislators.

    The next steps for the Lake Nona Disney Parks headquarters should it pass review approval is for a final site plan determination, appearance reviews for the building elevations, and submissions of building permits.
